Attended a yo-yo event that took up a long afternoon and was way overpriced! Not for older kids to sit through although they might be interested in some of the toys. I'd refer to it as more of a shop with a show first. The owner in her enthusiasm might entice some or have the opposite effect. Once was enough.

We were looking for something different to do with our two grandsons - and found it at the Spinning Top and Yo-Yo Museum. We were there nearly two hours. It is a small location. We were shown all of the yo-yo cases - and interest was added for the boys when I-Spy and Find the Duplicate games enhanced their viewing... More

Very unusual, odd place, the likes of which aren't found much anymore. It's a great place to go to find the strange toys from long ago (at 58, it's the kind of stuff I grew up with). It's a great place to go for things for kids that don't involve batteries or video or violence. They pretty much have their... More

We loved the top museum! Judith is both an educator and an entertainer! There was plenty to keep the kids (ages 6- adult) interested and engaged for 2.5 hours. I highly recommend it! We cant wait to go back to the Logic Puzzle part of the museum.

The Spinning top and Yo-Yo museum is more of an experience then classic museum. Which is a good thing! I went with my 9 year old son, who ate up the hands on time with the vast array of tops, games, and intricate pieces. I wont lie, i giggled and played with everything myself, and had just as much fun.... More

We, husband, son and myself, preregistered for a Spinning Top event at this 'museum'. The charge is usually $15 per person, but registering in advance saved $2 per person. Worth the price of admission?... Yes, with qualifications. You are attending a show that has a set schedule. If you want to purchase from the gift shop, and we did, be... More

My wife and I were browsing the Burlington shops before a movie and went into the Spinning Top Museum. The front of the small cramped shop is a mix of older collectible items and new puzzles and games. The back of the shop is the actual museum that is only open by appointment. Barely got thru the door when we... More
